9/11 group requests meeting with Biden in push for Saudi Arabia documents release
This is not the first time 9/11 Community United has requested a meeting, but the somber date is only six weeks away. Sources close to Biden indicated this week that the president plans to visit the memorial site on Sept. 11; he also marked the date as the deadline for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan.
Members of Community United don’t want gestures, though; they want answers. The group is seeking documents from the government that are central to a yearslong lawsuit it filed against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
“Twenty years is far too long for anybody, especially considering it’s the biggest mass-murder, terrorist attack on American soil,” Community United co-chair Brett Eagleson told Fox News. “The families deserve the truth, justice and closure, and we need to get that from our government.”
